A long-time bus driver for the Mount Pleasant School District has resigned after being charged with third-degree theft for allegedly using a district credit card to purchase gas for her personal vehicle.

The Washougal-based kindergarten through sixth-grade school district received a resignation letter from Cheryl Randall, a 27-year-employee, dated for Thursday, May 25.

Randall pleaded not guilty to the theft charge last week in Camas-Washougal Municipal Court. A hearing has been set for Thursday, June 28.

According to a report obtained from the Washougal Police Department, Randall admitted to using the district credit card to purchase gasoline from Hi-Way Fuel in Washougal on multiple occasions. The confession was recorded.

The case was originally investigated by the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office, but was forwarded to Washougal police because the alleged crime occurred in that city.
